Creativity & Culture

Creativity and culture connect us. Indeed, in many ways, they define us: bringing joy, providing meaning and building understanding and respect. We explore and strengthen these human bonds every day to help make the world a better, more enriching, place.

We do this through research in the written and spoken word; music and visual art; and the transformative impacts of new communication technologies. We capture people’s stories and help them tell their own. And we challenge how creative practice is understood, taught and valued.
